Augustine Sam is a journalist by profession, a novelist by choice, and a poet by chance. A bilingual writer and an award-winning poet, he writes, not only hard news but literary works as well.

Fascinated by the written word even as a kid, he fell in love with poetry the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once. He was the winner of the Editors’ Choice Award in the North America Open Poetry Contest & a Finalist in the International Book Award Gala. His poems have been published in international anthologies, including "Measures of the Heart" & "Sounds of Silence."

Of course, it's harder if I have a dateline, in which case I research hard. But if it's a novel, I wait for the inspiration to come and it always does, usually, when I least expect it. (less)

I would also say, it's the ability, if you like, the opportunity, to tell a story to the world, to express your innermost feelings and sensibilities, and contribute to ideas. (less)

Black Gold was an interesting read. Cerebral at times, emotional too, but an accurate portrayal of life at all times! Themes that held me throughout the novel were:

BLACK GOLD by Augustine Sam
"“Black Gold” is the latest novel from indie writer Augustine Sam. By my count, this is his fourth novel, and he has another one on the way. The novel is quite short, and resides in the gray area somewhere between a novella and a full-length novel...." Read more of this review »

Choreographed Emotions

This book is more than just a ballroom dance novel, and cheekily so, though its subtitle pigeonholes it as such. It is essentially the story of Nina and Carly whose liaison shifts rather quickly from a coach-trainee relationship
